I stayed home and saved my pepper spray & my batteries in my Taser.
Black Friday is too meganuts for me.
A day invented by corporations.

I spent about $45 around Black Friday. Of course, that was online, because unless I'm buying something useful, there's not much sense in braving the stores over $45 of stuff.

Less, I didn't go! :)

I bought a snowmobile Thanksgiving day. Does that count?

$80 on adobe photoshop and premiere elements

Happy: Way to go! Good to see there are still successful people in our country! Keep stimulating the economy!

I spent 150 on BF but spent another 200 on non-BF gifts. I have a TV and a computer, so not much for me to buy. I did pick up a 120gb SSD, but not that great of a sale.

@bambeii I would be honored to receive a handmade gift!

I didn't spend anything over the weekend, but my wife spent $5k on an outfit for herself.

Didn't leave the house on black Friday. Unless they were almost gonna give me an ipad then I wasn't leaving. Plus I hate crowds. I'll shop at 2am and pay full price just to avoid all the people.

I usually spend between $500-$1000 on Black Friday. This year $650ish. I get about 80% of my holiday shopping done that day. This is also the first year I have ever experienced someone being hateful. The whole atmosphere seemed more desperate & tense this year than the last 7 years I've gone.

Jhello, it was just a joke. I'm all for downplaying the commercialism of christmas. Its not what it is about. It's turned into a crazy rush of people being violent towards another. Sometimes I wish I was born 50 years earlier.

I shopped and broke my wallett from home. as not to get mugged by soccer moms at the store. spooky moms

11/29/11 7:36 pm

I actually got paid on Black Friday, so you could say I spent a negative amount of money.

11/29/11 6:33 pm

I scored. I got some a pair if corduroys and chinos for 40 bucks and a pair of Clark's for 50.

For the person that insulted Bambei: Christmas should not about spending a lot if money and getting cool stuff. Chances are that if s/he has people s/he cares about, people care about them too and they would love to spend Christmas with him/her. I'd rather have friends than a wii. Just saying.

I was working in retail most of the day on Black Friday, not as busy as I thought it would be.

11/29/11 5:13 pm

I went to Best Buy, got a netbook and a laptop. Wow. First time doing that, maybe my last. Haha

11/29/11 4:26 pm

I didn't buy anything. Didn't leave my house or turn on my computer.

11/29/11 4:20 pm

I didn't even go shopping on friday

Lol when I worked at Target on Black Friday it was peaceful, one of the only places

11/29/11 3:35 pm

All online by the way. I worked at target one year on black Friday and I'm never stepping foot in a store on black Friday again. I never though id see soccer moms in an all out brawl

11/29/11 3:31 pm

Bambei, not to be rude but your the kinda friend/family that nobody wants to see on Christmas. Haha I spent 200 on a wii bundle and probably another 100 or so on miscellaneous stuff.

11/29/11 3:29 pm

Getting up at midnight isn't worth saving $15 on tickle me elmo

Oh and I didn't have to go near a store for any of it. All online, free shipping! Yee haw!

Bought big ticket items I've been eyeing for a LONG time (3D LED TV & 3D Bluray!) I also bought a boatload of very discounted yarn and cake/cookie decorating supplies to make some homemade gifts. All in all, I think I saved about $1K/27%!

11/29/11 12:24 pm

I spent nothing. Instead of spending money on people that I don't have I'm making them gifts. Something from the heart. <3

11/29/11 11:36 am

I spent about 200 and got almost all the people in my list done except 4 my dad who I never know what to buy 4

@BRAZZERS: 16% of the US population spending $300 or more in one day is quite a bit. In order to really make the case for this answer being off you would need stats for pervious years.

@raccoonan: Here in America you can pitch a tent on the property of anyone who gives you permission to do so.

About $75 for lumber to fix my parents house. They are remodeling their kitchen.

Also, Brazzers: I find it hard to see your comments as credible when your screen name is the same as a major porn site.

11/29/11 10:25 am

Black Friday - because in America, you can pitch a tent for capitalism, but not for democracy.

i' m so glad we don't celebrate Christmas with gifts!!

I think it keeps us in the true holiday spirit. It's not about gifts, it's about being with family
